Fresh Eggs for sale!
I was at sprouts yesterday and thier eggs were 229 for a dozen white factory milled eggs. The brown/organic/freerange/vegetarian fed ones were 519 a dozen.
Sometimes you get more buisiness when you ask for more money- people think it is cool or something.
So, I would say put up TWO craigslist ads- one for 3 bucks a dozen, one for 5. See what happens. :)
I sell mine for $3/dozen, but since only 40 of my 80 chickens are laying now, it certainly isn't enough to offset feed costs. But oh well, I don't think I'd lose any business if I jacked up the price a little bit. I know a place around here that sells fresh eggs for 6 dollars and do pretty well, but that seems a little much too me......
We have finally reached the point where we are getting more eggs than we can eat or give away to friends and relatives. Our initial idea has been to sell eggs to offset the cost of feed prices. An attractive fresh egg road sign will go up shortly! My question is, whats a fair price to ask for eggs? I surely dont package them by small, medium, or large either. The girls wont cooperate when I ask them to do that. What you see is what you get is their reply! Sooo being new to selling eggs verses buying them from the grocery store, we dont know what price should be asked for fresh brown eggs of a mixed variety of size. How about it guys, how much are you getting?
Wow! were we wrong.Thinking more like $175.oo per dozen. We are going to be rich!!!! Thanks for the feedback.
You need to see what other free-range sellers are charging. There are so many chickens around here that $1.50 a dozen is the going price. Only a small circle of inner-city granola-eaters would pay a premium for "organic", since most everyone free ranges and feeds good quality, but not "certified" feed. Tough market.
